Tabs in navigation--How'd they do that???

Recommended Posts

I want to do something similar to this website that has tabs at the top left in addition to their main navigation because they have two sides to their business. I've created the HTML and CSS just fine but HOW did they get the active tab background color to be assigned to the right pages. If you go from the homepage to the about for example the active tab color changes from shoppe to interiors. How did they do this? They've essentially made it seem like there are two separate websites but there isn't, there's just one.

You need to target links based on page id. 

E.g.  (you need replace with proper page ids)

#collection...2189182 .shop-link {
	background: white;

/* all other pages */
body:not(#collection...2189182) .interior-link {
	background: white;
